What can we expect from USDCHF for the new week and what happened on Friday?

USDCHF on Friday rose 0.6% to 0.88001. Price is above 9-Day EMA while Stochastic is rising. For the week ending 2023-12-08, the pair rose 1.28% or 111.5 pips higher.

Looking ahead on Monday, USDCHF looks bullish as the pair ended higher after Friday trading session.

For the new week, our technical outlook is mixed. To see upside interest, we prefer to look at price breakout of week high of 0.88206 or at least consolidates above Weekly Pivot level of 0.87622. On the downside, we are looking at week low 0.86658 or 0.87037 (WS1) as immediate support level. USDCHF need to break on either side to indicate a short-term bias. A break above 0.88206 would suggest bullish bias after recent positive movement.

For the month of December, USDCHF is up by 0.56% or 49 pips higher.
